It’s Boris Kodjoe’s time to shine!
With a smile that will make you weak in the knees, there’s no wonder why this stud was named one of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 2002!
We loved watching him in Brown Sugar and in the Showtime hit drama Soul Food, where he met his future wife Nicole Ari Parker.
This past Valentine’s Day, the lovebirds stopped by ESSENCE.com to share their secrets to a happy and sexy marriage. “Make her feel great and you get food and everything else,” said Kodjoe.
Off screen, the couple is active in their charity, Sophie’s Voice Foundation, founded in 2008 in honor of their daughter who suffers from Spina Bifida. Since then, the Kodjoes have raised money for Spina Bifida research and have established The Center for Spina Bifida Research, Prevention and Policy in Atlanta.
In addition to his charity work, Kodjoe recently finished shooting Resident Evil, which is slated for release later this year.
Bravo to this actor, model, father, husband, activist and handsome gentleman.
Happy Birthday, Boris Kodjoe!
